Climate Survey - Resources


Both ease of access to tangible and intangible resources and satisfaction with resources were assessed.  Access is a challenge for many faculty members, particularly concerning support for travel.  This is of greater concern for assistant professors.  More than half of the faculty believe it is difficult or very difficult to get help to seek external grants.  Asian American faculty report having the least access to time for personal matters compared to other ethnic groups. Overall, full professors report more ease of access to resources they need to perform their academic activities. Most faculty are satisfied with their office, space for research/scholarship, course assignments, and administrative support.  However, the average ratings on all items were well below the maximum of 4 (very satisfied), indicating room for improvement.
